April hike

Two weeks ago Vixen, Troy and I went backpacking in the Apache Kid Wilderness (just south of Socorro). We've been there before and have learned that you can hike for miles without seeing another person. Or you can camp in their primitive, but nice, campground and see a few people.
We got there on Friday, hiked a few miles to set up the tent. Then hiked through the snow on Saturday to the San Mateo Lookout tower. Got lost while looping back... but ended up back at our car early in the afternoon. It started snowing again Saturday evening, and we were just hanging out at a car-camping site, so we eventually decided to just hop in the car and drive home to a warm bed that night, stopping in Socorro for a hot dinner along the way.
